Graduate of the Month
Braden Guy - July 2018
Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy
I was an area sales manager for a retail company, really not enjoying the Monday to Friday grind. One random day last July I had enough and handed in my notice, decided to take a chance with a new career path, one that I new I could enjoy and make a true career out of. It was hard to find somewhere I could trust to do my level 3, but once I had spoken to Alex I knew this was the course for me.
How have you used your new qualification?
Since graduating from Sports Massage Academy in November 2017 I’ve opened my own clinic, BG Sports Massage, inside of a local gym in Mansfield. I make my own hours and am truly enjoying life to the fullest. Through the graduate support network I also had the opportunity to massage at Europe’s Strongest Man, and work on none other than Thor Bjornsson, the Mountain from Game of Thrones and current World’s Strongest man.
What did you think of the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?
The support and advice that I have received from Sports Massage Academy and their alumni programme has been priceless; and from speaking to other therapists I know I wouldn’t have this much support from any other company. I’ve recently done my taping and strapping course and in October I will be doing the dry cupping course, to further enhance my knowledge in the industry.
